A loan of $1,000 helps a member to buy a stock of maize flour.


Barume Group's story

Emmanuel has been a welder for a long time but due to the burden of multiple financial charges, he was forced to give some money to her wife to start a money-earning business. She then chose to sell maize flour (regular and semolina). Taking into account her income and stock rotation, the family is not complaining because it has enough to eat.
